President Gibson Firms Up Executive Leadership Team


Over the last few months, President Gale E. Gibson made appointments to her leadership team, including Dr. Rashidah Hasan, Dr. Susan Mulligan and Mr. Courtney Inniss.

Dr. Rashidah Hasan, is serving as Acting Vice President of Human Resources, Regulatory & Legal Affairs/General Counsel.  In addition to her duties as General Counsel, Dr. Hasan will provide administrative leadership, supervision and coordination of the Human Resources Department.  Dr. Hasan has been with the College since 1999 having served as senior staff attorney; Director of Legal Affairs and General Counsel.  She was also an adjunct professor in the Humanities Division from 1992-1998. Dr. Hasan has a B.A. in History from Bloomfield College and a Juris Doctorate from Seton Hall University School of Law.  She is admitted to practice in the State of New Jersey and the U.S. District Court, and has provided exemplary guidance since joining my leadership team.

Dr. Susan Mulligan serves as Acting Executive Dean of Student Services. Most recently, Dr. Mulligan has served as Executive Dean for Institutional Advancement and worked with me successfully in steering the College toward reaffirmation of our accreditation with Middle States. Dr. Mulligan served as Dean of Students Affairs from 1996 until 2011. Since her arrival at the College in 1976, she worked in various administrative positions in the Department of Student Assessment & Institutional Research, as a counsellor/instructor and as a Professor in the Division of Social Sciences.

Mr. Courtney Inniss was officially appointed as Executive Director – Presidential Initiatives, after serving in an acting capacity since July of 2013. He came to ECC in January of 2013 as Academic Coordinator in the Office of Academic Affairs. He previously served in several academic and administrative roles  at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York, most recently completing eight years as faculty member in the developmental mathematics education department. Mr. Inniss has held other positions: Director of Immersion Programs (similar to our Summer Bridge and Winter Intersession programs), Director of College Now (a blend of our High School Initiatives and Early College Program offerings) and Senior Academic Advisor, where one of his primary responsibilities was teaching Freshman Seminar courses (our CSS).  Mr. Inniss earned his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science, and a Master of Science in Mathematics Education from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. His efforts inside and outside of the classroom reflect a tireless commitment to students and he will certainly be an asset.
